I'm not sure which dimensions you are looking for specifically. I have a Whaler bimini (actually made by Great Lakes Canvas of Tennessee). It is a three bow design 7 feet in length. The main bow alone is 67 inches from its bases to the highest part in the center. When mounted on the top of the gunwale and opened up, it results in about 6 feet 2 inches from the deck to the bottom of the tubing (just comfortable for me to walk under). The next longest bow is about 4-5 inches shorted and hinged off the main one. The middle bow is about half the height and again hinged off the main one. At the base, mounted to the top of the gunwale, the width is 70 inches. Near the top, just below the 90 degree bend, the width is 61 inches.

Hope this helps. I could send a picture or two of mine on my boat if it would help.

Just wanted the measurement at the base for width and the longest bow and how long the canvas is. My boat is 90 miles away on Oregon coast and wanted to have a bimini made to put up this weekend . There catching Chinook and Silvers and thought I would try !

Just mounted a 54x69 bimini on the gunnel top of my Montauk. The next size up stuck out over the rub rail.
